Important Sales Tax Update - Effective July 1st
In accordance with Connecticut General Statue 12-412(9) sales tax is charged to those customers that are not affiliated with the University. If you are using a credit card, debit card or cash for your food purchases, you must show your UConn ID card and have it swiped two times by the cashier: once to identify you as a University member and the second time to remove the tax. By producing your card, sales tax will not be applied to your purchase. PLEASE NOTE: It is your responsibility to verify your affiliation to the University by providing your ID card to our cashiers in order to have your transaction tax exempt. Once your payment card is swiped, there is no way to void the sales tax charge.
Husky Bucks & Sales Tax: All University employees have a Husky Bucks account already set up on their ID cards, which is tax exempt by default for food and drink. If you are paying for your food purchases with Husky Bucks, there will only be one card swipe to complete your purchase. Go to www.onecard.uconn.edu to learn all about the different ways you can load money onto your Husky Bucks account.
